Dear IRPC listmembers

See below for a call to all under 27 years old to take part in a 
pre-event at the upcoming EuroDIG. More news too soon about the two 
workshops that IRPC is involved in with others; on internet access, and 
human rights for minorities (WS 2) and refugees/newcomers (WS10).

If anyone is interested in being involved in some way do let me know in 
my role as focal point for these workshops. The EuroDIG Wiki pages for 
each one provides initial information.

best wishes

their participation at EuroDIG. The participants will have three days of 
talks and discussions, will get to know each other and work on a youth

The programme of the New Media Summer School focuses on the agenda 
of EuroDIG <http://www.eurodig.org/eurodig-2016/programme/>.

The deadline for submissions is 8th May 2016, 23:59h CET.

Due to limited capacity not all applications can be accepted. There are

Eligibility criteria

In order to be considered for participation (and additionally funding), 
a candidate must meet the following criteria:

  * is between 18-27 years old;
  * resides in the European continent
  * demonstrates interest in Internet governance related issues

Review and selection

The submitted expressions of interest will be reviewed by the EuroDIG 
Secretariat, with two purposes:

  * identify the most suitable candidates to participate in the summer
  * select the participants that would benefit from funding

If the request for funding meeting the aforementioned criteria exceed 
the available funds, the review and selection process will be made on 
the basis of the submitted expressions of interest, and taking into 
account the need to achieve a diversity of participants, in terms of:

  * geography (countries & minorities represented);
  * gender balance;
  * academia, non-academia;
  * organised youth, non-organised youth;
  * balance between newcomers (individuals who have not previously
    participated in EuroDIG processes) and experienced participants
    (individuals who have been previously involved in EuroDIG processes)
  * as well as the consideration of people less represented in general

Responsibilities of selected participants

Please note that participants selected will be responsible for

  * making their own travel arrangements. Cash reimbursement will be
    made onsite, in Brussels, on the basis of an invoice (to be
    submitted in advance).

Selected participants will be required

  * to help organizing a session in advance by joining the org team of a
    session of their choice
  * to attend and participate pro-actively in the EuroDIG meeting.
